Our Partners

The #CHPink Support With A Smile campaign was launched in South Africa in 2001 by Carolina Herrera de Báez, Creative Director of Carolina Herrera fragrances and daughter of fashion designer Carolina Herrera. The initiative partnered with the Breast Health Foundation, which was founded by renowned Johannesburg oncologist Dr Carol-Ann Benn. The campaign raises funds to provide care for women with breast cancer and to promote breast cancer awareness and prevention. Carolina Herrera has also partnered with African Sales Cosmetics, which distributes Carolina Herrera fragrances, and with Khanyi, who is a patron of the CHPink Support with a Smile initiative. Follow #CHPINK on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

In 2015, Ndalo Media partnered with the United Nations Children’s Fund (Unicef). Unicef seeks to create a more equitable world by fighting for and promoting the rights of children. Their programmes focus on improving the standards of living of the world’s most disadvantaged children. Unicef promotes girls’ education based on the understanding that girls who are educated grow up to become better thinkers, better citizens and better parents to their own children, and therefore the education of the girl-child benefits boys too, and inevitably, all humanity.

Play your part in giving every child a fair chance through Unicef’s Given Gain initiative.
